Shadowboxing – Choreography / Video

What can a body do when it is devoid of another body? Can the body dance in distance or with itself? What would this dance be?

In this work, Dmitry Paranyushkin and Kirikoo Des explore the choreographic concepts based on their EightOS practice. They are exploring the traces of the movements their bodies leave on and inside each other, conjuring them as they disappear into memory or into a different time and space.

Filmed by Ivan Rubio the video below is an excerpt from this ongoing work.
